Japanese Tea

Japanese tea is a beverage known worldwide for being both healthy and delicious. The country’s history with tea goes back more than 1,000 years to when tea drinking was first introduced to Japan from China by Buddhist monks.

Touted for its excellent flavor and benefits to health and wellbeing, tea soon became popular with court nobility and the samurai class, and the tradition of the tea ceremony—called by various names such as “chanoyu”, “chado”, and “sado”—was formed. Tea eventually became widely available to the masses and with different preparation techniques, and new types of tea were developed.
